Fair and Tender Ladies

Song Author Maybelle Carter Performer: The Carter Sisters Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Come all ye fair and tender ladies
Take warning how you court your [G7]men   
They're like a [Dm]star on a summer [C]morning
They first [Dm]appear and then they're [C]gone


They'll tell to you some loving story
And they make you think that they love you [G7]well   
Then away they'll [Dm]go and court some [C]other
And leave you [Dm]there in grief to [C]dwell


I wish I was on some tall mountain
Where the ivy rock is black as [G7]ink   
I´d write a [Dm]letter to my false true [C]lover
Whose cheeks are [Dm]like the morning [C]pink


Oh love is handsome love is charming
And love is pretty while it's [G7]new   
But love grows [Dm]cold as love grows [C]older
And fades [Dm]away like morning [C]dew  

And fades [Dm]away like morning [C]dew  


Come all ye fair and tender ladies
Take warning how you court your men
They're like a star on a summer morning
They first appear and then they're gone

They'll tell to you some loving story
And they make you think that they love you well
Then away they'll go and court some other
And leave you there in grief to dwell

I wish I was on some tall mountain
Where the ivy rock is black as ink
I´d write a letter to my false true lover
Whose cheeks are like the morning pink

Oh love is handsome love is charming
And love is pretty while it's new
But love grows cold as love grows older
And fades away like morning dew

And fades away like morning dew
